alo is locally developing amazing, sustainable food systems through advanced hydroponics to ensure that Utah will always have access to select, key foods. Unlike other food producers, our structure and our systems are designed to operate independent and irrespective of external conditions. Nothing - not even loss of traditional supply chains - will prevent us from feeding our community.
World conditions which would make alo's mission more economically attractive are unfortunately the same world conditions in which alo's food systems will already be critically needed. For this purpose alo is preparing now by:
We feel alo's mission is worthy of serious reflection by anyone who is able to assist us in this effort.
Our culture is built upon 5 core principles
Our strategies are a pragmatic expression of our culture in context- including our human resource strategy, team strategy, operating strategy, security strategy, and capital strategy.
Our purpose and strategic objectives are simply not compatible with a profit-first approach. By operating as a 501(c)(3) we can place our purpose first.
Our R&D will result in valuable discoveries which we intend to share openly with other like-minded organizations who want to join us in the effort to locally feed communities. Consider the benefit of any local community being able to grow any type of produce year-round.
Every $1 alo can earn in selling its produce is $1 alo can use to expand its production capacities, R&D, and operational independence. alo intends to provide as much fresh produce to Utah at as low a price as possible.
The hard science and commercial application of every critical facet has been tried and proven. We're simply refocusing these to meet a more pragmatic, long-term need that has not yet been prioritized.
alo may require a customized transdisciplinary structure; we're on it! It may call for minds that lean toward a more inclusive and holistic epistemological perspectives; we're aware! Indeed, the disparate industries, fields of study, principles, theories, concepts, and practices that must be harnessed in a unified, intelligible and productive way are diverse and numerous... we know!
What remains simple and clear is the importance of alo's mission and our commitment to it. We will succeed.
